Data.Com Clean Feature
Manual Record Clean up using Data.Com
Use Data.com Clean to manually update your account, contact, and lead records. Manual clean lets users compare a single Salesforce record side by side with its matched Data.com record and update the Salesforce record field by field.
Data.com Clean offers a number of ways to clean records. Users can clean individual records manually or clean groups of records from a list view. Your organization can also clean batches of records using automated Clean jobs. Manual clean works for all the account, contact, and lead records you have access to in Salesforce—not just those you previously added from Data.com. Manual clean is available to organizations that have purchased Data.com Clean, and to any Salesforce user with a Data.com Prospector license.
Cleaning list of Salesforce Records using Data.Com Clean
With Data.com Clean, you can select account, contact, and lead records from a list, and clean them all at one time. A Data.com Clean license is required to clean records from a list.
Data.com Clean offers a number of ways to clean records. Users can clean individual records manually or clean groups of records from a list view. Your organization can also clean batches of records using automated Clean jobs.
Cleaning from a list works for all the account, contact and lead records you have access to in Salesforce—not just those you previously added from Data.com. When you click the Accounts, Contacts, or Leads tab, you can select a view to seeing a list of the records you’re allowed to view. The results you see are called a list view. From the list view, simply select the records you want to clean and Data.com Clean does the rest.
Salesforce and Data.Com Comparision
When you manually clean a Salesforce account, contact, or lead record, you compare the data in your Salesforce record with data from Data.com. When you click the Clean button or Clean Status field value from a record, the comparison page appears. There you’ll see the Salesforce record’s fields and values side by side with the Data.com record’s fields and value.
- The columns present Salesforce and Data.com records side by side, so you can easily compare the data from each source.
- Field names appear on the left. I
- If your Salesforce data matches Data.com’s you’ll see a green check mark (Green Checkmark) for that field in the Data.com column.
- If Data.com has data for a field that’s blank or different in Salesforce, you’ll see a checkbox. Select it to accept Data.com’s data.
- When you clean an account, contact, or lead record, if you know that a particular field value is incorrect, you can flag that value as wrong to Data.com. If the value has been flagged as wrong, but you know the value is correct, you can flag it as right. On the comparison page, most fields offer the flagging option.
- If you use Data.com Premium Prospector or Data.com Premium Clean, when you clean an account or lead record, we create a D&B Company record (if one is available from Data.com and doesn’t yet exist in Salesforce) and link it to the account or lead. The D&B Company record is identified on the comparison page.
- If your Salesforce record is currently matched to a Data.com record and you think the match is wrong, click Wrong Match? and select a different Data.com record. This feature is available for D&B DUNSRight matching only.
- By default, fields that have identical data are hidden. Click Show Identical Fields to see them all, along with the fields that have different data (as in this example). If there are a lot of fields, a scroll bar may appear. To hide identical fields, click Hide Identical Fields.
- When you clean a Salesforce record, if you know the related account, contact, or lead is either out of business or not active at a company, click Report as Inactive to report that information to Data.com. If you believe the account, contact, or lead is active, you can tell us that, too.
- Click Save when you’re satisfied that you have the data you want, even if you don’t make any changes. The Salesforce record’s clean status will be updated as appropriate. If you click Cancel, your Salesforce record’s data won’t be updated, but if Data.com finds a better match for the record, the values in its Clean Status and Data.com Key fields may change. These two fields always reflect the best match from Data.com as of the most recent clean process, whether the record was cleaned manually (by you) or automatically (via Clean jobs).
